Verdure Science makes it three in a row with Nutrition Research Award win

Related tags: NutraIngredients-USA Awards, Curcumin, cognitive support

Indiana-based Verdure Science maintained its grip on the NutraIngredients-USA Awards Nutrition Research Project category with its third win in three years.

The company’s research, titled “Further evidence of benefits to mood and working memory from lipidated curcumin [Longvida] in healthy older people: A 12-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, partial replication study”​, with the Awards judges commending Verdure’s continued commitment to invest and build the science around its Longvida ingredient.

“Cognitive function – mood and memory – in older people is an increasingly critical issue for aging populations and especially during these stressful times,” ​said the NutraIngredients-USA Awards judges for the Nutrition Research Project category. “It is challenging to perform a quality trial for these endpoints, and the judges commented that this study is ‘as good as it gets’: A 12-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, partial replication study in healthy older people.”

“Best-in-class research team”

Ajay Patel, founder & CEO at Verdure Sciences, welcomed the news, saying: “We are honored to receive recognition of the continuous endeavors, investment in scientific validation, and commitment to rigorous quality we dedicate to our ingredients here at Verdure. We would like to extend special thanks and congratulations to our best-in-class research team, and, in particular, to the lead researchers of this study, Dr. Andrew Scholey and Kate Cox [Swinburne University].

“This award is Longvida’s third from Nutraingredients-USA for esteemed research efforts and we feel this truly speaks volumes about the integrity of Longvida. Above all, we are appreciative that our decades of investment and commitment to game-changing research is recognized by the judges at Nutraingredients-USA.”

The company’s research is exploring Longvida’s potential to address a global public health concern regarding the need for cognitive support through improved mood, working memory, spatial memory, concentration, sustained attention, and fatigue. In particular, spatial memory is known to take place in the hippocampus, and thus, targeting this area of the brain is of interest. Further, this project directly correlates to the most commonly affected demographic by examining a healthy group of educated adults aged 50-80 years.

“There has been an increased demand for cognitive health products, especially since the onset of the global pandemic,” ​said Kristen Marshall, digital marketing manager at Verdure Sciences. “This research gave further proof that Longvida indeed supports aspects of cognitive function, working memory, spatial memory & learning, concentration, and mood through improvements to fatigue, stress, tension, and anxiety.

“This trial also substantiates the efficacy of Longvida and adds to the existing cognitive health clinicals supporting Longvida,” ​said Marshall. “Not only is this impressive, but the trial was completed prior to the pandemic and really showcases the possibilities with Longvida well ahead of the increased interest, though we truly see this increased demand for cognitive applications sticking around for the long-term with consumers.”

Marshall added that the company is honored to be recognized by NutraIngredients-USA, especially in the Nutrition Research Project category alongside the shortlist of exceptional companies and products.

“Now, both the original work done at Swinburne University, and the second trial have been formally recognized as examples of game-changing nutrition research pushing the boundaries of nutritional science,” ​she said.
